Distance run – 6.8nm over the ground, 6.4nm through the water

Time from Lutes anchorage – 1hr 15mins


We threaded our way out of Uliveo with good overhead light so that we could see the hard bits and the benefit of our recorded in bound track.


Looking back across the reef at the Lutes Uliveo anchorage


After clearing the reef it was a one hour motor round to Gaspard Bay



The striking feature of the uninhabited Gaspard Bay is the tropical rainforest surrounding the anchorage
